8 pilgrims from Nilji village which include 6 women were killed on the spot when a KSRTC bus ran over them when they were walking on the road side as part of their ‘Dindi yatra’ going to Pandhapur.

The accident occurred at 12.40 pm as the driver lost control of his bus and ran over the pilgrims at Sutkatti on the Pune Bangalore highway. The bus was going from Belgaum to Chikkodi.

    Please mention that the bus’s front wheel got bust and driver lost control… else there are many people here to put blames on others…

    see now its ksrtc n ksrtc drivers turn…:-)

    May the souls rest in peace…

  2. Terrific accident. Innocent people got KILLED! Ridiculous drivers.

    Majority of Govt. Bus drivers are negligent. An annual Medical and Driving test has to be made mandatory for Public transport drivers irrespective of which State.

  3. ARE THE K.S R TC BUS DRIVERS EMULATING THE BLUE LINE BUSES OF NEW DELHI.?. THE BLUE LINE BUSES WERE NOTORIOUS FOR KILLING AT LEAST TWO PERSONS EVERY DAY ,SINCE THESE DRIVERS PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE A PROPER DRIVING LICENCE. MANY DELHIITES SAY THESE BUS DRIVERS DID NOT HAVE PROPER VISION . THE BLUE LINES BUSES OPERATED EVEN AFTER CAUSING COLOSSAL ACCIDENTS BECAUSE OF POLITICAL SUPPORT. THE BLUE LINE BUSES ENJOYED. : ))))))))))

  4. These bus drivers have become very negligent and rash drivers these days. Recently I lost one of my close friend Prasad to a similar KSRTC bus accident for no mistake of him who was standing at the road side and the bus just came and hit him and he is no more. I am just not able to come over it.

  5. It was horrible and very sad to see the accedent. I was going to Sankeshwar and it was heavy rain fall .and passed through the spot at 1pm. Couldnot just believe. Hope their soul rest in peace and I wish god to give courage to their family to sustain the loss . Hope whoever is injured gets well soon.
